"A beautiful and easy to grow tropical with aromatic leaves that smell and taste like lemon eucalyptus. Cardamom grows equally well in a pot or in the ground, easy to overwinter indoors, easy to divide. We have yet to have it flower, but the leaves are a culinary delight for wrapping fish or adding to stews, curries, and stir-fries."
